    Lock him up in the appropriate place and if he's mentally ill, get him some help.

    Reagan closed the mental hospitals in the 80's so I know resources are scarce.

    Mr. Curtis, an insanity defense is not going to work for you. Sorry!

    Mr. Curtis, I'm not sure if you ever heard of the phrase "Enhanced Interrogation Techniques." Sucks to be you! I hope you have a high endurance for pain.

    I'm with you Domi Mama! Protect MY President! Whether you agree with his politics or not he IS the President of the United States of America, and this action by one of our own citizens is absolutely NOT excusable.

    The same with the Senator too!
